Security Patterns is a studio visit installation of recent laser cut work. These sculptures and drawings are made from old books laser cut with poignant words, and drawings made from industrial patterns, all of which explore transformations in technology and their relationships to evolutions (or devolutions) in economies. Some choice examples include: two display bookshelves with an ever growing collection of 130+ investment guide books and get-rich-quick books (e.g. "Weath is a Choice" or "Investing by the Stars") all laser engraved with the logos of failed FDIC Insured banks, A shrink wrapped bundle of 12 Yellow Pages that have been cut all the way through with the phrase "GOOGLE" and a dictionary with the phrase "OMG LOL" cut from its pages.
Eyebeam will hold Open Studios for Artists In Residence, Student Residents, and Senior Fellows

A two-day presentation at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center allowing a rare, inside look at current research. Guided tours of artists’ work will be given every hour from 3–6PM.
Eyebeam is pleased to host Open Studios for its 2009 Senior Fellows, Resident Artists, and Student Residents at Eyebeam’s state-of-the-art design, research, and fabrication studio; showcasing video performance, wearable technologies, code and humor, party technology, and sustainablity design.
Visit Eyebeam for the biannual Open Studios—a rare glimpse into the practices of our current fellows, residents, and student residents. All of our three labs will be open to the public, with artists and technologists showcasing and discussing their work throughout the day.
This Open Studios will also feature Eyebeam’s collaboration with Transportation Alternatives in the form of PARK(ing) Redux: a block party and showcase of the group‘s citywide PARK(ing) Day action to reclaim parking spaces last month.
As part of Eyebeam and TA‘s PARK(ing)Day Redux, we‘ll close off part of 21st St. in Chelsea and put the streets parking spots to more creative use. Eyebeam fellows, student residents, and outgoing Summer 2008 Residents will present their work both inside Eyebeam, as well as streetside, in front of Eyebeam.
